Is Shelfer Dead?

CategoryArticles Author Simon Edwards Date

In Coventry and Others v. Lawrence and Another (2014) UKSC 13 (2014) 2 WLR 433, the Supreme Court rewrote the rules on the circumstances in which a court will award damages rather than grant an injunction in cases of nuisance. The case involved noise nuisance from a stock car racing circuit. The Supreme Court did not decide whether or not, in that case, an injunction should be granted or damages instead but, rather, left that to be considered by the judge who had tried the case.
